    He is the WAY, the LIGHT, the TRUTH. FOLLOW HIM AND WE ALL SHALL FIND LOVE, PEACE ETERNAL CERTAINTY. I woke up dreaming about this verse. Searched it online and it led me here. This thread couldnt have been any more perfect to stumble upon. Keep your humilty. Keep your joy. It is true, we will experience long suffering in this cruel, cruel world as a child of God... however, with His grace, we shall always be healed. Love you all. Rae

    We are loved by the Holy God who died for us. It is commanded of us to love our God with all our heart soul and mind and also to love all others with this love. We are to walk in the fruits of the spirit not in the flesh this is key to love.

    Verse 13 points out that we must keep forgiving one another and putting up with one another the way God continues to forgive and put up with our imperfections.

    I just love that verse, it tells us how we are expected to live our lives and respect each other as husband and wives and that God should've a part of our daily lives and that we cannot prosper without him, that should we sin in anyway we will not prosper in life. We need to look to God in all we do and not be caught up in worldly things but those things of our Father. We must encourage each other
